  • Doesn’t just apply to colleges or universities, this could be used by organizations providing continuing education and professional development opportunities for their employees in regards to their product, service, or industry – so this can be a one-stop-shop for employees to select, register, and schedule these courses or seminars – which again ties to the calendar feature we discussed earlier so that the selections would populate the already established scheduling system
